Dear Friends,

Each year many young students leave their homes across Africa to pursue higher education at many of the area’s fine colleges and universities. From dealing with the region’s changing four seasons to managing the culture shock, these young men and women face many challenges. In some instances; families will use their entire life savings to give a child a chance at a better education in America!

At PAAPO a 501c 3 nonprofit organization representing African professionals in the Pittsburgh Area; many of our members have similar experiences. We understand the challenges and know the financial commitment our families made to help us get off to a better start than generations before us. Our members believe in giving back. As part of our Annual Scholarship Drive this year, we will give back to a few of the most deserving of our young brothers and sisters from Africa.

We want to officially invite you to join us in our effort to raise funds toward this cause. Your gift may be small but shall be meaningful. The financial donations a few students receive will go towards the cost of meaningful things like books, meals, etc… This will also help insure continued diversity growth in our region.

The donations can be financial or material towards our annual fundraising auction that will take place on March 21, 2020. We are also accepting event sponsorships as outlined below.

Platinum: $3,000 - Your organization will be recognized as the primary sponsor.
Gold:   $1,500 – Your organization will be recognized on the event signage & material.
Silver: $750 – Your organization will be recognized on the event material.
Bronze: $500 – Your organization will be recognized as sponsoring a table for the event.

Thank you in advance for your generous contribution. You have no idea how much it means to us to have your support. Checks can be made payable to PAAPO and material donations can be sent through me.
